You can expand or collapse the taxonomy to see which concepts are in each section and subsection. Click a concept to select it and see additional information to help you decide if it’s the correct concept.

You can also filter the taxonomy by typing the exact name of the taxonomy section or concept in the Filter Taxonomy Section search box. The results automatically list only the sections that match your filter.

The filter option only works when you know the name of the concept or section exactly as it appears in the taxonomy. If no results appear, you may have typed an inaccurate name. Try your search as a keyword in the Search option instead.

Searching the Taxonomy

You can search for concepts when you have an idea of what you are looking for, but aren’t exactly sure where to find it.

Click the Search icon. Type a concept name or keyword in the Search for a Concept box and press Enter.

You can click the filter button to selection additional options to narrow down your results, such as Type, Period, Data Type, and Section.
